Walking is excellent exercise and the Bridgend guided walks evolved from the success of the Heritage Trails. Exploring the stunning countryside 360 degrees around the Bridgend Centre, our walks cover hills, dales, woods and fields and allow people to exercise and meet new and old friends alike.
Bridgend walks provide a great way to enjoy the great outdoors and socialise. You do not need to book a place, so please just turn up on the day. We currently have two different walks every week, one on a Monday evening and one on a Wednesday morning.
Our Monday ‘Walks for Health’ are short, easy guided walks in Bollington and surrounding areas and are designed to encourage new walkers. They provide a great opportunity to enjoy some exercise and meet people. The walks on this programme are weekly on a Monday morning at 10:15am until the end of March 2024. There are different start points around Bollington and surrounding areas each week on a rotational basis. All the walks are easy, approximately 2 miles in length, with no stiles and only gentle or short slopes/steps to climb or go down.
Our Wednesday walks are longer, usually between 4-6 miles and are around 2-3 hours in duration. There will be some climbs and stiles to get over. Each Wednesday walk has a boot rating to guide you on whether it is suitable for you. Please check the event on the website for the details or in the leaflet for that individual walk and choose a walk that is appropriate for your fitness level and abilities. All Wednesday walks start at the Bridgend Centre at 10:15am.
You can download our leaflet here which details all Wednesday walks from October to December 2024.
